BERESTECZKO.The Battle of Berestechko (Polish: Bitwa pod Beresteczkiem) was fought between the Ukrainian Cossacks, led by Hetman Bohdan Khmelnytsky, aided by their Crimean Tatar allies, and a Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth army under King John II Casimir. Fought over three days from 28 to 30 June 1651, the battle took place in the Polish province of Volhynia. It was, very probably, the world's largest land battle of the 17th century.Decisive Polish-Lithuanian victory
